Stage 2 of the Water Shortage/Conservation Plan 
is in effect. 

What should residents do in Stage 2 ?

1. Request a city wide 50% reduction in outdoor water use. 
2. Remind customers to optimize their irrigation systems so water is not directed onto impervious surfaces and turf is not over watered.
3. Reinforce the recommendation for customers to irrigate on alternate days.
4. Encourage wise use of water during outdoor activities including; washing cars, playing in the sprinkler, playing with water toys 
and filling pools.

6. Suspend high water use, non-essential municipal operations.

Water Conservation Info Sheet

There will be no enforcement at this stage.
The Plan:
The Plan is divided into four stages. The stages are not necessarily consecutive but each stage is intended to further reduce water demand, with the first three stages applying primarily to periods when irrigation demand is high. The four stages can generally be defined as follows:
Stage 1: Voluntary 25% reduction in turf irrigation
Stage 2: Voluntary 50% reduction in outdoor water usage
Stage 3: Mandatory prohibition on turf irrigation
Stage 4: Mandatory water rationing
